Dear sector colleagues,

A new COVID-19 guideline has been developed for the NGO sector on self-quarantining at home when living with others. This protocol applies for anyone needing to quarantine or isolate due to essential travel, potential contact or awaiting test results.

When determining whether to self-quarantine at home or elsewhere, please take into consideration whether others in the household are vulnerable or at-risk.

Extra caution is also advised for households with people working in high-risk settings.

Thank you for your continued work to reduce the impacts of COVID-19 in our community. If you would like to discuss any concerns, please contact DHS's COVID Response Team via 

More information on COVID-19 in South Australia

Best regards,

Lois Boswell
Acting Chief Executive
